Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller appears to have snatched up elusive Roc Nation artist Jay Electronica to appear on his upcoming Watching Movies with the Sound Off album.
Miller recruited Jay Elect for a collaboration called "Suplexes Inside of Complexes and Duplexes."
June 18 is shaping up to be a big day for music with Kanye West, J. Cole, and Mac Miller's albums being released the same day. Watching Movies With The Sound Off's 19-song tracklist will surely have fans a little more amped for the upcoming release. Some of the sophomore effort's slated features include Ab-Soul, Earl Sweatshirt, and ScHoolboy Q. And yes, that is Jay Electronica who's being listed. (Complex)

This week, Miller addressed the pressure of dropping his new album on the same day as Kanye West's Yeezus and J. Cole's Born Sinner.
"Kanye's album. It is [dropping that day], for real? You guys have the industry connect. So is it for real? Right. I feel him. At first, I had that date for a while and then it felt so right," Miller said, referring to June 18th. "And then I was a little nervous at first. But I was like, 'This is an omen.'" (Skee TV)
